WORCESTER – After 46 years as Worcester District Register of Deeds, Anthony J. Vigliotti will not seek re-election in the upcoming election this fall.
“I’m not running for re-election. There’s been no formal announcement yet, but it’s time to do something else. I’ve been here since 1972. I and my staff have built a great office here in Worcester. It’s well known it’s the best registry of deeds in the state,” Vigliotti told ThisWeekinWorcester.com on Thursday morning.
Vigliotti is a graduate of Clark University and Suffolk University Law School. Prior to his tenure as Register, Vigliotti practiced law for Conte and Conte and as a Massachusetts Public Defender.
According to Vigliotti, he has no intention of retiring and will re-open his law practice and work to support the campaigns of Democrats running for office in Central Massachusetts, notably Congressman James P. McGovern and Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin.
“Being in office for a long time, I consider myself an asset to those that will continue running for public office. Retirement is not in my vocabulary. I’m too young to call it quits now,” Vigliotti said.
Vigliotti said he plans to make a formal announcement regarding his decision to not seek re-election early next week.
State Representative Kevin Kuros (R- 8th Worcester District) formally announced his intention to run for Register of Deeds in early Sept. 2017. Rep. Kate Campanale (R-17th Worcester District) announced her candidacy on Nov. 2, 2017.
